Improvements to Romig Road serve as a catalyst for the future development of Rolling Acres Mall and the surrounding business district, revitalizing the neighborhood to provide better access to multimodal facilities and businesses along the corridor.
Romig Road Full Improvements
Environmental Design Group provided full-time on-site construction management, construction administration and inspection for Romig Road Full improvements. Services for this $15 million road corridor improvement included daily reporting and quantity tracking using city-owned Unifier software, utility coordination and other traditional construction management tasks such as RFI tracking and shop drawing review tracking.
Coordination with the redevelopment of the Rolling Acres Mall site and adjacent $35 million interchange project led by ODOT was a required component of the project. The project reconstructs Romig Road/State Street as a 4-5 lane principal urban arterial along 1.63 miles between I-76/US 224 and SR 261 (Vernon Odom Blvd) in the cities of Barberton and Akron, completing a link between adjacent federal transportation investments along I-76 and SR 261. The project includes approximately 3,000 LF of new sanitary sewer collection system with an additional 1,000 LF of large diameter sewer lining and manhole rehabilitation. The pavement will consist of new reinforced concrete pavement with an aggregate base. Other incidental items include four new signalized intersections, new storm sewer and pedestrian lighting.
